Living Streets Alliance’s Mobile Bike Repair Program
In this episode of Pedaling the Pueblo, host Kylie Walzak chats with Gerard Acuña-Schultz and Colby Henley discuss the Living Streets Alliance’s free mobile bike repair program available for schools, community groups, even apartment complexes with high numbers of children living at them. The goal of the program is simple: to fix up perfectly ride-able bikes so kids and adults alike can ride them while simultaneously teaching bike maintenance skills to the riders of those bikes to ensure sustainability. It’s the “teach them to fish” approach to long-term bike love!
